Professional golfer Alan Saxon, finding himself short of money, is grateful to get an offer to fly off to Australia to take part in a prestigious Skins Game. But Sydney proves no escape; he s back in the city where he spent his honeymoon. Sadly, his ex-wife, Rosemary, is about to marry and deny him access to their beloved teenage daughter. To add to his troubles, Diane, the attractive wife of wealthy Warren Oxley, the Aussie tycoon who s sponsoring the Skins, idolizes Saxon and insists on being his caddie during the contest. When he plays a practice round with her at the Greenblades Country Club, Saxon is overpowered and Diane is abducted, plunging him into a nightmare world of violence, betrayal, murder, financial intrigue, and sexual obsession, as well as the ploys of dedicated environmentalists. The Skins Game becomes a struggle to save his own hide where only his skill with a golf club can ward off extreme danger and deepening heartache."
